@ Vivace. I don't know. I made no changes to the differential internals.
I simply pulled the bolt, yolk, sump pan and drain plug off, removed the seal, degreased all sealing surfaces,
then installed the new seal and pan gasket and sealed the threads of the drain plug, nut and spline with Permatex Ultrablack.
Tightened the nut and re-peened it with the original alignment.
Let it cure overnight, then refilled it.
No leaks 2 weeks on.

Removing the bolt requires an Alfa tool to immobilize the shaft and
a castellated socket to remove the nut.
I was able to slide the yolk off with only a little effort.

HMMMMM... I stared at it in the garage and wondered why, even with the interior removed, for the last 9+months I haven't been able to get my heater box out?

Love those wheels!
Thank you. It only took me 25 years to track them down. They were available new through Alfa Ricambi in the mid 90's. They are 14x7 instead of the traditional 14x6. Could have bought a set at that time but did not. I kicked myself when they were all sold out. I recently found a set so I bought them right away.

Tank out, yay. Get this - still fuel in in after over 10 years stored.....(?)
Doesn't smell good, dark orange...but it burns. And it obviously has no holes in it. Pretty shiny inside with some varnish. Off to the radiator shop for cleaning.
